Proposed overhaul of NSW planning laws

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is calling for public comments on significant changes to NSW’s planning laws. The proposals would amend the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 across a number of aspects of the planning process, including community consultation, environmental impact assessment, building provisions, design, and enforcement.

Read our briefing note to get a head start on your submission: Six big changes to the Planning Act in 2017 (and three missed opportunities). And come along to our free community seminar in Sydney on 2 March 2017, where EDO NSW lawyers will explore the proposed changes.

Submissions are invited until Friday 31 March 2017.
